December 3 marks the United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities. Community Living BC joins the people we serve, families and our partners in the community living sector in recognizing the rights of people with developmental disabilities and their vibrant contributions to B.C. communities.
The theme of this year’s day is “Empowering persons with disabilities and ensuring inclusiveness and equality.” CLBC is grateful to the many people, families and service providers who share our vision of lives filled with possibilities in welcoming communities, and are working each day throughout the province to advance inclusion. Our efforts are based on a belief that our communities are better places when everyone can participate fully in community life.

To mark the day, the Sprout Film Festival is taking place in five communities across B.C. Find full details in the CLBC events calendar here.
